English press claims Spurs will fine Argentine pair Romero and Lo Celso

Tottenham pair Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso traveled to South America without permission, it is being claimed.

The Daily Mail suggests they did not have permission to meet up with the Argentina squad, with the pair now facing club fines

Romero, a £42.5million summer signing from Atalanta, and Lo Celso are two of four Premier League stars at the centre of the World Cup qualifying coronavirus controversy between Argentina and Brazil.

But while Aston Villa allowed their Argentine duo, Emiliano Martinez and Emiliano Buendia, to play in the fixture that was suspended mid-match, Spurs did not give the go ahead for Romero and Lo Celso to travel.

Tottenham stuck to that agreement but were ignored by Romero and Lo Celso, and the pair will have to face the consequences, with hefty fines.

Centre-back Davinson Sanchez, who joined up with the Colombia squad, can also expect a club fine.
